That is not a nice feeling @Sans911 but can understand with the move and all you have been doing lately. Sometimes we need to let those feelings sit and just get on with it and other times we need to feel all those feelings to get through them. Finding that right balance can be draining in itself. Feeling for you Hon and here if you need to talk or just need some company. I am spending the afternoon relaxing after DBT and pdoc - still tired so won't push myself to do much before work again tomorrow.

I have felt much the same for you in regards to this year @Sans911 With all that you have been doing and all that you have been involved in I have felt that you are on the right track to gain some confidence within yourself. You certainly do understand those self-doubts - describing it as swiss cheese is a perfect analogy - we try to hold it all together and from the ouotside it seems like a whole cheese but inside there are many holes that we simply cannot fill with the lack of confidence we have in ourselves.
I do feel much better at this school than I did at the end of last year at the previous one. It was definitely a toxic environment - I knew it then and even more so now. I definitely made the correct decision in leaving. I hope you are right - that this year is a time of growth and empowerment - I also hope for that for you too Hon and feel that it is quite within your grasp if things fall your way. There are so many unknowns in the future and most of us here cannot see too far ahead - it makes the present more difficult to deal with - but you are also doing things to better yourself so remember that you are worthwhile, competent and full of wisdom @Sans911 and anyone or any organisation would benefit from your knowledge and dedication.

Hey @Sans911 A quick check in to see how your week has ended and if you have a little less of those lost feelings you had earlier in the week.
